Call for Nominations to the Future Earth Governing Council

At the last Future Earth Assembly meeting in September 2021, the Governing Council of Future Earth was elected (see the composition HERE). Last year, the members were elected with staggered terms, in order to ensure continuity in the work of this group. 

As the next Future Earth Assembly meeting (in September in Paris) approaches, the terms of some of the Governing Council members come to an end.

In order to elect new Governing Council members, we are now opening a call for nominations. Note that the members whose term is ending can be re-elected for one additional term.

In this scope, we launch a call for nominations to interested persons within the Future Earth Community to serve in their individual capacity as members of the Future Earth Governing Council for a 3-years term (January 2023 – December 2025). One seat is open for ECR at the Governing Council and needing a new member (or renewal of a member).

The Governing Council is the elected and operational decision-making body of Future Earth, whose responsibilities include but are not limited to:

  • Overseeing the strategic direction and scientific priorities of Future Earth;
  • Identifying priority research/practice areas of strength and opportunity;
  • Overseeing the Secretariat’s operations, including the development and oversight of Future Earth policies and practices.

The terms of reference for the Governing Council are available HERE.

The nomination of Governing Council members is based on both self-nominations and nominations by others and necessitates completing this form before 9 September 2022. 

Please note that nominees must be members of the Group they apply to represent and their eligibility will be checked by the Secretariat.

Following the eligibility check, nominees’ profiles will be shared with the Assembly members of the Group they applied to represent. In addition, the list of nominees will be presented at the Future Earth Assembly meeting in September 2022. Elections will take place online in October 2022.

Please contact if you have any questions.
